of the men who were reliving their experiences in vietnam. but they did. they relived the absolute horror of what this country, in a sense, made them do. they told stories that, at times, they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of genghis khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of south vietnam. >> all these years later, this book you've been working on for ten years, based upon these documents buried at the national archives, confirmed what john kerry was saying then.
